RIM urges Blackberry users to turn off javascript

March 28, 2011, by admin, category Uncategorized

If you’re looking for a reason why Progressive Enhancement is the right way to develop web pages, look no further. Research in Motion is recommending that IT departments and users disable JavaScript on their BlackBerry devices, citing a vulnerability.

Developing your site or application to require javascript will actively prevent users who’ve followed this advice from using your site. Is that really what we want?

Clearly, even with modern browser technologies, we cannot control or mandate the features that our users will use our site with. Developing your site or application with Progressive Enhancement ensures that such users are not excluded from your site.
